New Star Trek Into Darkness Featurette
'It's lightyears beyond the first movie'

Before JJ Abrams turns his attention to Star Wars, there's the not-so-small matter of Star Trek Into Darkness to attend to. And, as if to remind us of the fact, the nice people at Paramount have released a new behind-the-scenes reel from the sci-fi showing the director hard at work on Star Trek and in no way hanging around in the editing suite doing Gamorrean Guards doodles and jotting things down in a pad marked 'My ideas for Star Wars'.



What can we glean from the featurette? Well, not much more than we've already seen in the teaser trailer - a selection of factoids Empire has helpfully corralled into one giant slab of knowledge - or the announcement trailer, but it's nonetheless a fun look at some of the action beats Abrams has in store for us. As the man himself enthuses: "The action here is light years beyond the first movie".

If that franchise reboot is anything to go by, it's a bold statement. It was Abrams's gift for combining breathtaking scale with moments of intimacy and emotion that made Star Trek a pure pleasure. If Star Trek Into Darkness raises the bar even higher, we're in for a treat.

The movie sees the crew of The Enterprise - Chris Pine, Simon Pegg, Karl Urban, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana and Anton Yelchin - tackling the menace of Benedict Cumberbatch's John Harrison. Catch it in UK cinemas and on IMAX from May 17.

"The action here is light years beyond the first movie".
JJ Abrams making a Sci-Fi faux pas! Surely he should know a light year is measure of distance and not time. More
